On Thursday, Sudanese Prime Minister (PM) Abdalla Hamdouk stressed his country’s firm position regarding Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) crisis.
This came during his meeting with UN Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs and Peacebuilding Affairs Rosemary DiCarlo.
During their meeting, Hamdouk said that Sudan does not oppose the construction of the dam, but it rejects Ethiopia’s unilateral, ill-considered steps. He also underlined the need to reach a legally binding agreement that meets the interest of all parties.
On her part, DiCarlo confirmed that the United Nations Environment Program will provide technical support on the GERD issue.
